The movie also marks the veteran actor’s first onscreen collaboration with Gautham Vasudev Menon, the filmmaker-actor who is playing a key role in it. Interestingly, Mammootty and GVM are reportedly set to join hands yet again, but this time for the latter’s most-awaited Malayalam directorial debut.
